GROUP ACCUSES MARK SANFORD’S CHALLENGER OF IMPROPER SOLICITATION

S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne is receiving criticism from a group of political insiders for a fundraising solicitation sent in violation of its guidelines.  Earlier this month, Horne sent an email to members of the Liberty Fellowship of South Carolina – a group which describes itself as “an incubator for exemplary leadership in South Carolina.”

Her message encouraged the group’s members to financially support her candidacy against “Republican” U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford (news of which broke exclusively on this website).

Here’s the text of her message …

Liberty Fellows,

In case you missed the announcement, I wanted you to know that I have decided to run for Congress in the Republican Primary in the First Congressional District against Mark Sanford. I would love it if each of you would check out my campaign website at www.jennyhorne.com.

In a federal election, I can accept donations only from individuals or their LLCs. Personal checks can be made payable to Jenny Horne for Congress and mailed to the PO Box listed below. Again, thank you for your continued friendship and support!

Together we will win the Republican primary in the First Congressional District and beat Mark Sanford!

Happy Holidays to you and yours,

Jenny

P.S. The law allows individual donations up to $2,700. I hope you will show your generous support by sending a contribution to help us have a strong start to 2016.

Horne’s message apparently rubbed a few of the “Fellows” the wrong way, and three hours later the group’s executive director – Luanne Runge – sent out a message of her own.

“Our golden rule is that we do not raise gold in the Liberty Fellowship family – that is, we do not solicit money or votes through the Fellowship,” Runge wrote.  “If there are Fellows with whom you have a relationship outside of the Fellowship, then you can solicit them individually.  Wholesale solicitations to the entire Fellowship or a subset (for example, your class), are not within the lines.”

Horne, of course, is the state lawmaker whose impassioned, tearful plea during the Confederate flag debate was credited by the national media with turning the legislative tide toward removing the controversial banner from the grounds of the S.C. State House.  But Horne’s speech wasn’t without controversy – most notably her yet-to-be-validated claim that she was a “direct descendent” of former Confederate States of America (CSA) president Jefferson Davis.

Nope – was sure that was her when I first viewed the video – I’ll take another dose of my medicine and have a look or two or three or four just to make sure

Politicians spend the majority of their time doing two things; making big frigging fools of themselves and raising money. She is accomplishing both of these tasks with this one endeavor.

Sanford better stay away from this lying witch and just debate her cut out. I thought Colbert-Busch was a manly,ugly attack dog but gee wiz-she looks as rabid as Wasserman-Schultz.

I just got a fund raising email from Sanford this morning and may send him $25 for pepper spray if she gets close. :)

Jenny Horne is from the Summerville Clan. Like Converse Chellis, her mentor, she believes she is entitled to every penny in your pocket.

We, the unchosen, are supposed to fund the Clan, obey the Clan and love the Clan.

For me and mine, we would not give them a nickel or vote for them. They are lazy and corrupt.

From Jenny’s RINO horn come both blasphemy and scorn for the
living Word of God

Like con-stabbing Haley and I-Lie-To-Cons-Joe Wilson—when
they’re laid beneath the sod

They’ll say…I ripped down patriots’ flag and I so like to
brag and the RINO reward I got

Put me down here with a world of LGBTs and…Lord God is this
place far TOO hot !!!

Don’t worry about me breaking the rules, Sic. I can do anything I want to do. The rules and laws do not apply to me. Jean Toal is my mentor. I helped steal that election for her.
